Cameron Bancroft has indicated that bowlers, apart from Steven Smith, David Warner and himself, were aware about altering the condition of the ball during Newlands Test in 2018.
Speaking to The Guardian saying, “Yeah, look, all I wanted to do was to be responsible and accountable for my own actions and part. Yeah, obviously what I did benefits bowlers and the awareness around that, probably, is self-explanatory.”
“I guess one thing I learnt through the journey and being responsible is that’s where the buck stops [with Bancroft himself]. Had I had better awareness I would have made a much better decision.”
